Wired To Hunt

BowCast.com: Bringing Bowhunting to an iPod Near You

New York City is quite possibly the greatest city in the world, but it definitely isn’t the place to be when you’re trying to prepare for deer season. The last three months I’ve had to improvise when it came to curing my hunger for the hunt. During my time here, one of the greatest discoveries I’ve made is finding out about BowCast.com. BowCast is a podcast that focuses on bowhunting tips and strategies, brought to you by hosts Anthony and Aneal. I’ve really enjoyed their podcasts, and found them truly informational. I found one of their first episodes to be particularly relevant to my current search for the right accessories to upgrade my bow with. Give this episode of BowCast a listen, as Anthony and Aneal talk about how to upgrade your bow and where to start when looking to buy a new unit.

You can listen to the rest of the episodes at their website www.BowCast.com. I will definitely be following their podcasts in the future as I gear up for the October archery season.


Get Your Deer Hunting Fix Online


If any of you are like me, you’re already counting down the days til deer season. Usually getting some target practice or scouting can hold me over during this late summer lull, but here I am in New York City with no way to get my outdoor fix and cabin fever is kicking in bad. Luckily, last fall I discovered MyOutdoorTV.com. This is a great website where you can watch dozens of great hunting and fishing shows streaming online. You can watch everything from North American Hunter to Fishing with Bill Dance. The video quality is great and the choices are endless. Last fall, while I was stuck on my college campus, I spent hours watching hunting videos to get geared up for the coming season. One of my favorites was “BuckEye Cam Fair Chase Encounters”. It’s an archery only, self-guided whitetail hunting show that is filmed primarily in Ohio and I found it to be one of the most educational and interesting shows I’ve seen yet. So if your dying to get outdoors, but don’t have the time or means, check out MyOutdoorTv.com to get your fix online.

Early Season Deer Hunting Strategies

Early season buck on the run.

Field and Stream recently ran a story outlining some of the best strategies for bagging an early season buck. Hunting over water, setting up along rub lines, decoying for bachelor groups and hunting early food sources were all brought up and detailed. While these are all effective strategies, my thought is that these ideas have been around for as long as I can remember and seem to be pretty general. I’m wondering if there are any truly radical ideas for sticking a buck early in the year, that only work during this part of the season. So what crazy schemes are you pulling together to fill your tag early this year?
